Interesting book, it reads as a very honest account of Sexton s lead up to the Lions tour of Australia and the doubts he had about being selected.The most interesting part of the book and the elephant in the room is the part he leaves out It s clear from his comments and his relationship with Gatland that he has authority issues What comes across time and again is how deeply the break up of his parents marriage affected him, yet he says very little about it in this book, and how it still encroaches on the mental side of his game. It s not about the money he says early on Then pretty much it seems to be all about the money An odd character. Decent read, he s far honest and open than I expected Interesting hearing how things were under different managers and his relationships with other players. An easy read which shows the insight that nobody knew about especially the move to Racing Good insight, easy read Great read great insight into the life of Johnny especially in this eventful year Straight up and to the point Highly recommended.
